…Bicycle races are dangerous?

Bicycle Car Crash

This has got to be one of the craziest pictures ever!

What you see here is the crash that killed one and left 10 others injured after the driver, who apparently had been using cocaine before this crash, fell asleep at the wheel and plowed into a bicycle race taking place in Monterrey, Mexico.

There really isn’t anything else to say besides “Wow!” and “Pay attention when driving near a bicycle race!”

…Cocaine is bad for the brain?

Caution: This video is very graphic.

In Australia, they apparently don’t have to hold back for their PSAs like they do in the US.

To teach people the dangers of cocaine, this clip follows a man as he enters a bathroom, peels back his head, and then proceeds to snort down a little piece of his own brain.

It gets the message across loud and clear, but is definitely not for the squeamish.

…Cocaine still has social stigma?

Radar Cocaine Prank

Radar wondered: Would sniffing the white stuff in public go unnoticed, or do people still care? Armed with a bag of confectioners’ sugar and the phone number for a lawyer, they set out to find out.

Potential targets include the swank (Graydon Carter’s Waverly Inn), and the pedestrian (Starbucks), and the results might surprise you.

Care to indulge?

…Wings are made of caffeine?

Red Bull CanEver use Red Bull to get a set of wings?

Ever wonder what those wings are made of? Wired did, and wrote an interesting article called What’s Inside.

The gist: Meat Sugar, Caffeine, and Bile!

Though it’s not as disgusting as it sounds, there are some interesting ingredients contained within.

Least surprising result? Caffeine is the main ingredient in wings.

    All the things this drink is supposed to do for you — increase concentration and reaction speed, improve emotional state, and boost metabolism — are known effects of this white powder, a distant cousin of cocaine.

Though it might not change your addiction to the little blue can, at least you’ll know what’s giving you wiiiiiiings.

…It’s Things Thursday: Cocaine?

Cocaine

The energy drink market is filled with promises and potential, colors and animals, so how do you stand out from the crowd? You name your drink Cocaine, that’s how. By naming your drink after an illegal substance, you gain instant publicity (there’s no such thing as bad publicity, right?) as parents try to stop you, and instant popularity as kids try to drink you. So what’s in this “legal alternative” anyways? While they’re not going to sneak in any of the good stuff (wouldn’t addicted customers be great?), they do pack in:

Ingredients

Plus, with only 18g of sugar and 70 calories per serving, you’ll probably burn off the extra calories through teeth chattering alone. Apparently it tastes great, and with 350% greater energy than “The Bull”, it’s sure to have a few energy drink converts, though you might want to check for any preexisting heart problems before downing something like this, because in the end, Cocaine will always be a killer.
